As of March 2021, sellers that offer hygiene and topical products through FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon) will be required to use a safe seals / tamper-evident security label on their packaging. Amazon’s seller guidelines (packaging and sealing requirements for Hygienic and topical products) explain that this change is intended to ensure customer confidence that items are new and in unopened condition.
The requirements, laid out by Amazon, of a suitable safe factory seal are:
- The seal leaves a sign of tampering on the packaging when broken.
- They are opaque either with the company logo/any logo that cannot be replicated by the customer (cannot be manipulated or copied)
- They should be of a different color and should not blend in with the surface of the product.
- The security seal should be sturdy, and the only way to break it is with clear intent (no accidental breaking e.g. during transportation or usual packaging handling).
Advast Suisse offers a wide range of security labels that comply with Amazon FBA’s new requirements and offer brands a way to enhance their packaging design. Our security labels offer features such as permanent adhesives, resistant to heat, water, and chemicals, that can be combined and customized to seal even the most unique product packaging.
VOID labels as a most pragmatic solution
VOID labels offer the most flexible and customizable solutions. Before opening, the label appears as a solid color but when the customer peels the label an irreversible pattern or “VOID” message is revealed on both the label and the packaging thus preventing misuse and making any manipulation immediately visible.
